Former Manchester United favourite Dimitar Berbatov is travelling to England to have talks with Aston Villa according to a report from Bulgarian publication Gong.
The Bulgarian legend started his career in England when he moved to Tottenham Hotspur in 2006 and became a star player for them after scoring 46 goals over two years. That earned him a massive transfer deadline day deal to Manchester United, a move that usually ends up on montages of the biggest deals to be done on the final day of the transfer window. There he continued his legendary status as he scored 56 goals in 4 years, notably topping the Premier League scoring charts even when he was pushed out of the first team by the likes of Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez.
After departing England after a successful two-year spell with Fulham, he ended up at Greek side PAOK Salonika and did well for them too before being released in May. But now that he is a free agent, he can move anyway and he is looking to return to England. That is why he is currently on a plane heading to England so he can sign a contract with anew club.
The current favourite to sign Berbatov is West Ham, who are still on the lookout for a new striker after they pulled out of a deal to sign Scott Hogan, but Aston Villa are also set to begin talks with him. Even though they are now leading the race to sign Hogan, they are still interested in adding the veteran to their squad as even at the tail end of his career, he still has the ability to poach goals like he used to do.
